Fine China.

dutch porcelain and french limoge

franse limoge en nederlandse porselein

porcelaine hollandais et français limoge

I’m having a hard time adjusting.

it is very difficult having three going on four harts

het is heel moeilijk hebben drie gaande van vier harts

il est très difficile d’avoir trois passant sur quatre cœurs

This is the first time that I’ve ever been struck by lightning.

oh yes! we understand well as ukrainian thunder chants in the castles of this hart of harts

o ja! we begrijpen wel zo oekraïense donderen gezangen in de kastelen van dit hart van harts

ah oui! nous comprenons bien que le tonnere de ukrainien chanter dans les châteaux de ce coeur de cœurs 

I’m frightened, because recovery is a slow process,

we are not afraid because wisdom teaches dewdrops by another name are snowflakes

wij zijn niet bang omdat wijsheid leert dauwdruppels onder een andere naam zijn sneeuwvlokken

nous ne somes pas peur car la sagesse enseigne sous un autre nom les gouttes de rosée sont des flocons de neige

but I don’t mind it, because the memories are priceless.

so i treasure such indelible memories as being beyond mere words

zoals ik dergelijke onuitwisbaar herinneringen schat als woorden zijnde verderop

donc je chéris ces souvenirs indélébiles comme étant au-delà de simples paroles
